Robert Nisbet is to leave Sky News

We have no idea where Robert is off to, but we believe he is leaving broadcasting news altogether.

Robert joined Sky in 2005 as lifestyle correspondent, before moving on to America and Europe. He spent the last few years as Political correspondent, working in Sky’s Westminster headquarters.

He has covered the inauguration of Pope Francis, the trial of the mass killer Anders Breivik in Norway, the Soma mine disaster in Turkey, the annexation of Crimea and the continuing civil war in Syria. He also reported on the funeral of Nelson Mandela at his tribal homeland.

Nisbet joined the BBC in 1994 as a launch producer on Radio 5 Live. He also made a short-lived transition to daytime television alongside former Popstars judge Nicki Chapman, on BBC One’s The Morning Show.

He joined Liquid News in 2000 after a stint as entertainment correspondent and presenter on Radio 1’s Newsbeat. He left the BBC Three show a year later to become entertainment correspondent on The Six O’Clock News.

In 2003 Nisbet was appointed BBC News’ Los Angeles correspondent, where he reported on Michael Jackson’s abuse hearings, to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s inauguration as governor of California.
